Joey Angotti's latest update for A Soldier’s Crest: Imperium

Jul 15, 2016

This has been a pretty crazy day! Win or lose, the Nerdist/Inkshares Video Game contest has been a blast. I want to thank everyone who has supported so far - everyone still planning to support and everyone who has followed me or reached out over the last 10 days. We have been quite a force and we’re currently over 100 preorders! I know the contest is almost over but this is a crazy accomplishment! Had their been just a bit more time left in this contest, I might have been able to pull this off or crack the top 3!(Heck, at the rate we’re rising - it might still -BE- possible!)

Either way, I am extremely grateful to everyone who has contributed. Some pretty cool things happened today as well:

Quick backstory: I am a huge fan of Spartacus. It is my favorite show of all time - so I reached out to a few of the cast members on Twitter.

Ellen Hollman(@EllenHollman) - who plays the amazingly beautiful warrior Saxa - retweeted my plea for help! That alone was pretty awesome!

Then, if you haven’t read the Inkshares blog where they asked a lot of the entries in this contest what books they would want to be made into video games, you need to go and read that RIGHT NOW! (

My choice was The Shannara series by Terry Brooks. So I posted about it on Twitter and Mr. Brooks himself(@OfficialBrooks) liked the tweet! It was quite the honor! Especially as an aspiring author!

Thank you again to everyone for the support - if you haven’t preordered any of the books in the top 10 of this contest yet, I encourage you to go for it! If you join this rollercoaster of preorders I’ve been on for the last 10 days - I really appreciate you! Good luck to everyone!
